Galore Mag is a new voice in the downtown fashion world celebrating girl power, art, beauty, culture and sex appeal. We salute those women who embrace their femininity to the max like the pin up queens, movie starlets, and supermodels of the past. Galore represents an era in which we celebrate the allure of femininity, and once again indulge in the seductiveness of these glamorous women. Issue one is inspired by the Pulp and Grindhouse asthetic. We recruited the help of legendary photographer Ellen von Unwerth and Texan bombshell Ashley Smith. They take us on a wild ride in Good Bye Horse’s, a sexy tale of equestrian fetish. We couldn’t think of anyone more appropriate to represent the fashion, sex, and glamour of yesterday and today than this amazing duo.
Seeing as you’re a boss, what do you think of the word bossy- own it or not?
Nah, I’m not “Bossy,” I just tell it like it is!
How did you get into dance?
I started taking dance classes (Ballet, Jazz,) at age 9, then auditioned for a Scholarship at Dupree Dance Academy in Los Angeles when I was 18, 6 classes a day for 2 years helped me become a professional dancer…
Where did the name pussycat dolls come from?
We were normal “Sweet” girls. Dancers by day, but when we hit the stage we turned into fierce kittens, well, PUSSYCATS! We looked like “Dolls” on stage, from the Lashes to the Costumes, so I put the 2 names together, and Ta-Da! Pussycat Dolls!
What makes a star?
Confidence! And Discipline in always working your butt off on your craft. Practice makes perfect, you can NEVER know enough!
What are you working on this year?
Besides my 24/7 Devotion to my GRLs , I am also currently choreographing The Emmys, featuring Weird Al, and Andy Samberg.
Do you think it’s tougher getting to where you are than your male equivalents?
Its challenging, but I work so that I get the same respect and same results.
Do you bring your boss-ness and dominate personally into other parts of your life like the bedroom?
I’m a Pussycat Doll! Does that answer your question?
Do you think you intimidate people around you?
It just comes with the territory being a successful woman, but I treat everyone as an equal and just want to inspire
Whats something you’re really proud so far?
My dog Sugar. She’s almost human and understands me better than anyone. My niece and nephew, Jocie and Asher, and of course my two girl groups, GRL & PCD!
